Yukari Oshima plays Bing-Bing, an assistant to a powerful businessman, who becomes concerned when she see a young fighter named Tiger Tong get suckered into joining a Mafia clan. She attempts to protect him, but soon Tiger is performing hits for the Kay Chen Triad that dramatically affect Bing-Bing's own company. She retaliates by killing the enemies of his clan under the alias Rose Killer. Being on opposite sides kindle an emotional tie between them that results in an unusual, and ultimately uncomfortable romance.

This rare Taiwanese project remains one of her strangest motion pictures. Collin Chou also co-starred with Yukari in DRUGS FIGHTERS.
